ICAA provides a forum and comprehensive educational resource for students, design and building professionals, and the general public, both in the United States and in Europe. Public Education Programs include lectures, exhibits, walking and travel tours, and conferences on classical architecture and the allied arts; continuing education courses; study tours; seminars; and intensive winter and summer programs for professionals.


ICAA publishes an annual journal, The Classicist, and new and reprinted books on classical design through “The Classical America Series in Art and Architecture.” The Forum, a newsletter for members, is published twice a year.


Through the annual Arthur Ross Awards ceremony, the ICAA recognizes excellence by honoring the achievements and contributions of architects, painters, sculptors, artisans, landscape designers, patrons, and others in preserving and advancing the classical tradition. The Rieger-Graham Prize and the Alma Schapiro Prize provide opportunities for designers, architects and fine artists to study abroad as affiliated fellows of the American Academy in Rome.


ICAA maintains a strong ‘voice’ in the public domain, championing the continuation of the classical tradition as a vital cultural resource.
